I thought rather than break my map of Valorn i should create a smaller test map and get peoples opinions and advice on a scale that is much easier to change.

Still going for a hand-drawn black and white effect. So i created a quick map which will have all the elements off the final map. Following Steel Generals comment i have gone for a more natural looking coastline and thanks to Delgondahntelius' tutorial i have tried out some basic mountain shading.

Any comments on the coastline and shading (or anything else) would be appreciated and i can try again and hopefully improve it.
